Facebook Acquires Location-Based Service Glancee

Facebook is acquiring Glancee, a mobile service that helps users find and connect with people based on their locations.

From Glancee’s home page:

“We started Glancee in 2010 with the goal of bringing together the best of your physical and digital worlds. We wanted to make it easy to discover the hidden connections around you, and to meet interesting people. Since then Glancee has connected thousands of people, empowering serendipity and pioneering social discovery.

We are therefore very excited to announce that Facebook has acquired Glancee and that we have joined the team in Menlo Park to build great products for over 900 million Facebook users. We’ve had such a blast connecting people through Glancee, and we truly thank our users for being a part of the Glancee community “.

Less than a month ago, Facebook acquired the mobile-based photo-sharing app Instagram for $1 billion.
